Toward Limit State Design of Ships and Offshore Structures Under Impact Pressure Actions: A State-of-the-Art Review
Abstract:In design of ships and ship-shaped offshore units, issues related to impact pressure actions arising from sloshing, slamming, green water, or explosion are of particular concern. The structural response under impact pressure actions is quite different from that under static or quasi-static actions. It has been recognized that the limit state approach is a more rational basis for structural design and safety assessment where both "demand" (loads) and "capacity" (strength) must be accurately defined. For impact pressure action cases, the demand is associated with hydrodynamics areas, taking into account the characteristics of impact pressure-time history, and the structural capacity is associated with structural mechanics areas, considering geometric and material nonlinearities together with strain rate sensitivity. This paper reviews recent advances and trends toward future limit state design of ships and offshore structures under impact pressure actions.
